Kenya is a truly outstanding safari destination. Its parks and conservation areas offer a great variety of landscapes, flora and fauna, while being fairly close together (by African standards) meaning you can tour several of them in a short time. On all our drive-in lodge safaris in Kenya we use private vehicles with personal guides. Whether you are travelling as a couple, a family or small group, having your own vehicle means you can stop whenever you want, wherever you want and for as long as you want. In addition, your own vehicle means unobstructed views of the animals and unlimited access to the roof viewing hatch.
All our holidays and safaris to Kenya are tailor made, combining your interests and requirements with our advice and expertise. Our tours are private, with our clients travelling in their own vehicle with personal driver guide, allowing you the freedom to stop whenever and for as long as you wish. We also offer fly-in safaris allowing you to easily link up key safari destinations like Samburu or Laikipia with the Masai Mara and maximising your time on the ground. Our portfolio of lodges and camps is hand-picked and diverse.
As a rule the climate is warm and humid at the coast, cool and humid in the central highlands, and hot and dry in the north and east. The rainy season is divided into two periods: the long rains fall between March and May, whereas the short rains take place in November time. In general, temperatures are highest during January, February and March.
If you wish to go on a safari holiday and see as many animals as possible, then Kenya is a great choice. It is home to the Big Five animals of lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo, as well as a myriad of other fauna and flora. It is one of the few places in Africa where we can confidently expect you to see all the Big Five. It also offers a wide variety of terrains within a small (for Africa) area, allowing you to visit different habitats.
The variety of experiences that Kenya offers is exceptional, add to this the friendly people and great properties and you end up with a first class safari. In one week you can gaze up at Kilimanjaro from the marshes of Amboseli, game-drive for leopard and lion in the Masai Mara, search for hippo by boat at Lake Naivasha and watch rhino on the shores of Lake Nakuru. Few other places offer such variety. You can even visit baby elephants, learning about pioneering conservation projects and hand-feed giraffes on the way back to the airport.
